White House counselor Kellyanne Conway tried and failed to spin Monday’s revelations during FBI Director James Comey’s testimony which determined two things. One was that Donald Trump was straight up lying when he claimed that former president Barack Obama had his phones wiretapped prior to the 2016 election. Also, Comey publicly confirmed there is an investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election and whether associates of the president were in contact with Moscow.
Conway tried to spin it by saying that Comey said that the vote totals in swing states were not hacked. Well then! So, none of this Russia collusion stuff must be true even though Trump’s administration is plagued with scandals involving ties to the hostile foreign government.
Comey “confirmed that no votes were changed or affected in any of the swing states that President Trump won,” Conway said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.”
“That’s important because if you listen to the Democrats and many of their friends, they insist this collusion and this effect on the election — it simply was not there,” she continued.

“This investigation’s been going on for eight months,” she a. “We know very little about it. No connection, no fruits.”
Conway chose her words poorly when she called the Comey hearing coverage ‘breathless’ considering the following tweet which will come back to haunt her.
In October of 2016, Conway tweeted, “Most honest people I know are not under FBI investigation, let alone two.”

We find it hard to believe that Conway knows any honest people considering the people she surrounds herself with and her penchant for lying.
And the fact that it was revealed that votes in swing states were not altered does not disprove collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Comey said during his testimony that it is unusual for the F.B.I. to confirm or deny the existence of any investigations, but in unusual circumstances when it is in the public interest, the bureau sometimes will discuss such matters.
“This is one of those circumstances,” he said.
